SWINGING BRIDGE #005 PÉT NAT RIESLING 2017

0.00

Barrel fermented Riesling left on solids.  Cloudy but fine, a great example of this increasingly popular style.  Fresh acidity, green apples, reminiscent of farmhouse cider, and with a fine bubble. 

"It’s a fresh-ish-feeling, thirst-slaking, creamy-textured, fizzy white, with a joyous vibe and general more-or-less ease of drinking. It mainlines some of riesling’s more obvious characters, pulpy grapefruit, green apple, floral elements, with a dialling up yeastiness… indeed, you’ll have to like patisserie/bread dough/cookie dough characters to get stuck into this wine. That is the wine’s pro and con, which has me sort of on the fence in assessment. It’s an interesting expression anyway." 89 points, Mike Bennie, www.winefront.com.au
